Baby Hamster Kidney Fibroblast Cells (BHK-21)

Prophase Nucleus in an Isolated BPAE Cell Stained with DRAQ5

The first stage of mitosis, prophase, can be observed in the image presented in this section. The red-absorbing dye DRAQ5 that was utilized to target the DNA in a culture of BPAE cells reveals that the nucleic acid has condensed into chromosomes in the featured cell. The culture that the cell was resident in was also treated with MitoTracker Orange CMTMRos in order to visualize the mitochondrial network.
